  Neuro / Cardiac ICCU  
   
     
  HISTORY:  
     
 

Pune's first state of the art ICU began at KEM Hospital with 3 beds in the early seventies. Expansion was inevitable and in 1986, a modern, 7-bedded Intensive Care Unit with central oxygen supply, central suction, multipara monitors and ventilators was set up. Being in great demand as a dependable ICU, it metamorphosed into a 25-bedded Ultramodern ICU in a matter. This was thanks to a munificent donation from the Tata Trust. Today the KEM ICU has an annual turnover of over 10,000 patients.

 
 

In 2006, a new high-tech 10 bed Coronary Care Unit and 9 bed Neuro Critical Care Unit were started.
